Tyson Fury is considering becoming the new owner of Morecambe to throw “millions” at the League One club.
The WBC world heavyweight champion already has his ‘Gypsy King’ brand embroidered on the Shrimps’ shorts.
After it was announced Fury will face Derek Chisora at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in a trilogy fight on December 3, the unbeaten 34-year-old revealed he is mulling over a takeover of the club in the seaside town where he lives.
He told talkSPORT on Thursday: “Quick question, I’m thinking about buying Morecambe Football Club, they’re in League One at the moment.
“So I was thinking I invest X amount of millions in them.”
Former Crystal Palace owner Simon Jordan replied: “By invest you mean throw it at them, invest is the wrong term.”
Fury said: “Yeah, basically throw it at them and keep them going up. I’ve been offered to buy Morecambe Football Club.
“I own all the training facilities anyway and the training gym. So who knows? You might be looking at a football club owner.”
Jordan asked Fury: “You know how to make a small fortune in football?”
The world champion responded: “Start off with a bigger one! It’s the same as being a boxing promoter.”
